We set off early on Sunday 6 August on our journey to Decorex Johannesburg 2017. A very long drive lay ahead – symbolic of our journey to Decorex exhibiting in total. Fortunately, no murders were committed and no speed fines incurred in the course of the drive, and soon we were concentrating on our Tom-Tom’s directions to the apartment we had rented.
The two days that preceded the opening of the exhibition at Gallagher Convention centre were frantic. There was much Gautrain’ing, Uber’ing and shopping. Hard work and amazing co-operation from our agents and furniture suppliers characterised these pre-show days. The absolute dedication from Johann and Ernie du Toit, Ronel Currin and the teams from Blockhouse, Ultimate Mattress, Persepolis and Incanda who helped us set up the stand. The result was FABULOUS! Our products were showcased beautifully and the stand at Decorex drew very favourable comments and many compliments.
